boxes holding certificates of vote mailed in from around the country. they found president obama won the election with 332 electoral votes. it's the first time since eisenhower that a president won 51% of the popular vote twice. and we're learning more about the inauguration. chief justice ron roberts will swear the president is just like he did the first time around. but let's remember who will be right there next to the president, vice president joe biden. he will be sworn in by supreme court justice sonya sotomayor, the first hispanic person to administer an inaugural oath of office. but yesterday, it was joe being joe. classic biden. and i loved every minute of it. >> hey, mom. >> how are you? good to see you. i'm joe biden. >> who do you want me to look at? >> whoever you want. >> anybody else want to be sworn in as a senator today? >> i could watch that all day. but let's face it. joe biden is a great politician. he's likable. he's loyal. he's tough. and, most importantly, he knows how to get things done in washington. joining me now is bob schrum, senior advisor to john kerry'
only 6,000 troops to 20,000 remain after 2014. to ensure the country does not descend again into a safe haven for terror. officials i have spoken to believe that president obama will opt for fewer troops and a faster withdrawal, which means in the future, we will likely be even more dependent on these drone strikes, diane. >> thank you so much, martha. >>> and returning home now, news today from secretary of state hillary clinton. 24 hours ago, we saw her walk out of the hospital after that health scare and blood clot. well, today, she said she would be back at work next week. she worked from home on conference calls with her foreign policy team, and they said she sounded upbeat and raring to go. >>> and, in washington today, it was a kind of new start. the just-elected 113th congress of the u.s. arrived from around the country. and it was a day filled with drama. fresh off the bruising brawl over the fiscal cliff, john boehner was re-elected speaker of the house. but this time, 12 of his fellow republicans did not vote for him. last time, the vote was unanimous. after taking the gavel,
said. >> sure. it's pretty clear that obama believes that the only problem that we have is be a undertaxing problem in this country. >> for medicare as well? >> everything, everything. there's no indication that he honestly believes that we have a spending and entitlement problem in this country that can't be taken care of through the fiscal consolidation that comes around by taxing people. >> i agree with him, sir. i do not believe that president obama wants to cut spending. do you think he does? >> yeah, i do. i don't think he wants to cut it enough and won't go as far as i want him to go, but, you know, he's laid out $375 billion worth of cuts in things like medicare that are at least a good start. >> but with all due respect, $375 billion in cuts, that's over ten years, right? every month we spend $100 billion more than we bring in. $375 billion over ten years when you're spending 100 billion more per month than you should is pitiful. >> michelle, that's why our commission proposed to cut spending by $3 trillion over a ten-year period. i get it, believe me. you know,

's a big news item you may be aware of it. president obama by executive order is going to allow illegal immigrants to stay in the country if they have a spouse or a parent/child relationship. it is called the hardship waiver application. it may even be stretched a little bit. is he on the right track with this kind of thing? >> well, i have not seen the details of the executive order, but i'll tell you this, this administration has engaged in a troubling pattern of trying to rule through the executive fiat. legislation is entrusted to the u.s. congress to pass, it is not entrusted to the president of the united states. if president obama wants to change the immigration laws he should come down to congress and he should push for immigration reform. he should not attempt to unilaterally change the law, violate the law and violate the constitution. >> because last summer as you know very well, he waived deportation of the young kids who were brought in illegally. >> right. >> but doesn't the republican party have to deal with this in a more positive, constructive way? not just language and
increasingly clear that president obama will again deal with a congress that will not act in a rational manner that will put ideology before country; that would rather obstruct in bad faith than act in good. so tonight in "the war room," nuclear options. [♪ theme music ♪] >> jennifer: 113th congress had its first full day in session today, and we have already seen signs that the republican party is not planning to play any nicer this time around than last time around. there's some good news because in its first major vote congress did pass legislation to help sandy victims, a $9.7 billion package, and the majority of republicans did vote for the plan presumably bending to significant public pressure. but about a third of the republican caucus actually voted against it. against a bill to help hurricane victims, and that includes some major figures like representative paul ryan. that is just one of the many signs of fracture within the republican caucus which is still reeling from yesterday's tough fight over the reelection of john boehner as speaker. he may have
that's what this country needs. >> somebody said the women candidate speak softly and carry a big statistics. i do not agree with the speak softly part. when i saw president obama few week ago i told him about our quarterly dinner i said mr. president if you want to see bipartisanship in washington invite the women senator to help you get it done. he loved the idea. he plans to invite us to the white house. >>reporter: so they say they are ready to tackle big issues like jobs. transportation. immigration. but it's their male counter part who keep reopening roe vs. wade and contraception. >> most of us would agree that the government doesn't have a place in that. it's really individual family whose should make thos decisions. >> i'm pro choice so i don't disagree with what my friend jean just said but i think those issues should be settled and should not be the main focus of debate. >> i don't think they are entirely settled. that's the problem. there were amendment introduced to say that women wouldn't have access to health insurance coverage for birth control. there wa
becoming more liberal? the debate about same-sex marriage and marijuana say about this country? >>> two monumental shifts in the american culture in 2012, two states voted to legalize marijuana and same-sex marriage is legal in nine states, and the district of columbia. president obama tipped the scales with the stunning announcement that they now supports same-sex marriage. tonight's big story, president obama's support for gay marriage, how much is personal, how much is political? is this a game changer? just yesterday, clay aiken said he wished president obama would, quote, hurry up and evolve faster. you must be pretty happy he reacted so quickly. >> i am. i feel -- i feel empowered. >> a big day for every gay american, a big day for every american in many ways, whatever reaction you had to it. how did you feel when you heard the news? >> it is bittersweet. i'm in north carolina, as a north carolinian, really disappointed with the way the amendment initiative vote went yesterday here in north carolina. but it's very promising to hear president obama finally come up and speak out on
.s. and 13 abroad. many were living with their abusers. the obama administration has unveiled new rules allowing undocumented immigrants to avoid lengthy separations from u.s. family members while applying for legal status. current u.s. policy forces immigrants who entered the country without authorization to return to their native countries for visas, then bars them from re-entering the u.s. for as long as a decade. starting in march, family members who can demonstrate extreme hardship if separated from u.s. family members may be eligible for a waiver allowing them to re-enter the country more quickly. the new policy could potentially spare hundreds of thousands of families from being kept apart. new scientific research has shed further doubt on claims about the environmental benefits of the natural-gas drilling process known as fracking. researchers with the national oceanic and atmospheric administration and the university of colorado say methane may be escaping from gas sites at much higher rates than previously thought. data suggests as much as 9% of total methane produced may be l
our economic future is under way. republicans are making sure the fight is dirty. president obama and congressional democrats do not have any time to celebrate the fiscal cliff deal they reached earlier this week. in about two months the country will reach its spending limit. republicans already announced their intentions to hold the debt ceiling hostage once again. >> i think there's going to be a whole new field of battle when the debt ceiling rolls around. most of us have pledged that we're going to have to, before we vote again to raise the debt ceiling, even though it may be at great political cost, we've got to address spending, and that means entitlements. >> well, there you have it. republicans are treating the debt ceiling as a bargaining chip. the senate republican leader thinks he has a winning hand here. mitch mcconnell is leading the charge to get major concessions out of the president of the united states in exchange for a vote to increase the debt ceiling. mcconnell wrote an op-ed for yahoo news today saying the fiscal cliff fight represented "the last word on taxes

countries trust american leadership when it seems incapable of solving anything at home? whoot while the west foremost democracies stay paralyzed, china is making decisions in moving ahead. this week president obama claimed that the fulfilled his mandate by raising taxes on the rich. he and his leaders are building brussels on the potomac. a, do you believe that? and how important is that? and, b, is that going to get fixed anytime soon in terms of the next two months in terms of how we are being perceived? >> so i don't think the analogy is especially helpful, but the fundamental facts are as described. so i think what's important is as we look at the next couple of months, congress is going to be focused exclusively on the fiscal challenge that they face. and the real problem here is that there isn't necessarily a combination of tax increases and spending cuts that can, quote, solve the problem. and so the extent to which congress addresses one side of the equation, it creates a problem on the other side of the equation. and so that is the challenge that congress faces. it's an int
